into every issue in washington right now but she is really putting herself in front of a lot of these issues. she did at the bar association. she said there she is going to give a speech on the nsa debate right now. correct, which is really interesting, given that in 2008, the primary was lost in part because of the left's upset with her vote for the iraq war. the nsa is an issue liberals are very unhappy about and the base of her party is unhappy about. i am surprised that she is getting out there ahead of things as much as she is. >> and very forward looking. >> correct. >> she could easily go in and reminisce about being first lady or talk about her tenure as secretary of state. hey governor, i want to ask you the $64,000 question. here it is. how much are these movements across the country by the gop precipitated by census data pertaining to what's to come in this country in 2050 when whites become a minority as a group of the population? >> i think a lot of it's being driven by that. by the way, you're showing your age. no one under 35 knows what the $64,000 question was. but you're abs

the developments here in washington, do you think, and what the u.s. is going to be doing? >> reporter: well, i think there is a lot of frustration with u.s. policy. it has been seen as incredibly inconsistent, that the united states backed mubarak for days. that after 18 days decided to up end that relationship and throw him under a bus. then they supported the military while it was in power, then supported the muslim brotherhood and has now been more or less supporting the government that has taken over in a coup but is threatening to withhold some aid. people here don't know which side the united states is on, what the united states stands for in egypt and both sides are blaming washington but at this point that's part of the egyptian frustration which is about the situation that's going on here. there is a natural tendency to reach out and blame washington for every problem that happens in this country. >> where are we now, richard, in umpiring this use or not use of chemical weapons in the fight in syria? >> yeah, i think what happened today in syria is more directly significant than the r
